Persecution is increasing in Myanmar as more people turn to Jesus Christ. Buddhists who convert to Christianity have difficulty keeping jobs and are often driven from their homes, according to a VOM worker. Two families currently working with VOM’s Burma fish farm project lost their jobs and homes after coming to faith in Christ last July.
One family is living in a hut used for secret worship services, while the other is living in a hut where fish feed is stored. Amid this increasing pressure, the fish farm just completed its second harvest cycle. Despite setbacks from flooding and government opposition, the farm still generated income, which will be invested in church planting as well as re-invested to make the farm more productive.
